Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love all the food but hate that bowling ball belly bloat so I try to lighten up the food. To me the bird is a secondary character and I make plenty of go alongs as the sides are my faves. There are so many to choose from and I usually make five or six (or seven or eight)! These four recipes are the ones I make every year without fail. I’m sure if I ever eliminated one of them there would be a price to pay!Read More
You can have a fridge packed with healthy food, a gym schedule planned out and the best intentions in the world, but if you aren’t motivated and in a positive mindset, you’ll have an extremely difficult – and likely unsuccessful – time practicing a healthy lifestyle.
The fitness industry as a whole has painted a picture of what it means to be fit, and that includes being peppy and enthusiastic all of the time. While it’s great to be high-energy, it does not come naturally to many of us – men or women – and that’s okay!Read More
The summer has come to an end, and we now find ourselves entering one of my most favorite times of the year – the Fall!

In fact, I think Autumn is the perfect time to establish healthier habits to stay motivated in our wellness journeys as we barrel toward the holidays.Read More

There are a lot of different approaches so choose what works best for you.Read More

It’s probably safe to say that most of us want to look good as we mature. We don’t necessarily have to, or want to, follow every fashion trend that comes along. But, as women over 50 we don’t want to dress like old ladies, either. Let’s discuss some of the things we can do to look our best, every day.
While I’m not a fashion blogger or a fashionista, I do have an eye for style as well as a simple, clear and sensible approach to fashion over 50. My years as an Interior Decorator and Home Stager have given me a perspective that works for fashion, too.
